Beautiful Barnabrow “first look” and humanist wedding

Back in September Nirvana and Laurie celebrated their beautiful humanist wedding in Barnabrow House, in east Cork. Nirvana’s smile and personality radiated when I met her and Laurie a few months before that, as she described what she hoped for on the day. It was a lovely small wedding, with the ceremony taking place in …

Rose & Denis, Rosscarbery

It’s a fairly miserable early January day as I write this, but I’m not complaining. I’ve spent the last couple of hours going through the photos from Rose & Denis’s wedding, back on a sunny day in late September. I think September is one of my favourite months for weddings. The autumnal light and the …

The year that was … 2013

It’s almost March 2014, and I’ve only just now taken my first proper look back at the work I made in 2013. It’s very hard to choose a selection to represent a year, so I won’t label any of these as favourites – they’re just some of the photos that I like from the year. …

Cork city winter wedding

I met Dave & Eva back around March ’13 to discuss their wedding, and do a little engagement shoot around the docks area of Cork city. It was pretty cold as we ran around the docklands, but we had a good time and quickly realised it would be great to come back to this area …

Kate & Donal at Springfort Hall

Kate & Donal were married in the lovely Kanturk church on a beautiful day late September day. Despite being a week or so from October it was like mid summer, but with that beautiful autumnal early evening light. From Kanturk we drove a short distance to Springfort Hall which was perfect for an early evening …

Katie & Federico Cork City Wedding

Katie & Federico got married last September. They signed the paperwork in the lovely little registry office in Cork, with their friends and family, and then headed to Flemmings for a champagne reception and delicious dinner (I can vouch for it – Katie & Federico very kindly invited me to eat with them). After a fantastic …

Ballintaggart House Wedding on the Dingle peninsula

At the start of July I had the pleasure of spending the day with Laura and Rowan and a lovely small group of their friends and family down in Dingle. We started the day with the girls at Ballintaggart House just outside Dingle town, and then headed to St. Joseph’s church at Inch for the …

Garryvoe on a rainy day

Sometimes I get asked by prospective clients, “what’ll we do if it’s raining?”. Now, this is Ireland, so everyone knows what to do when it rains. Find a nice cosy pub! Seriously though, it’s Ireland, and there’s always a chance of rain. The only thing to do is embrace it. Bring along a nicely shaped …

Top of the Clarence

I love this photo from a couple of years ago. Not so much for the view, which is great, but for the colours and tones, the blues and aqua greens, and the pink of her flowers, and the deep red of her shoes. The view is fab too of course, and one of the reasons …

Kay & Keith

  I received a lovely email from Kay & Keith today. They were married last year in Castlemartyr. Always great to hear some kind words – “We would like to thank Rory for his excellent photography at our wedding in Oct 2012. Rory made it exceptionally easy for us all day. While one of us is camera …

Killarney Wedding

  Last month I was delighted to be part of Fiona & Padraig’s wedding down in Killarney. The reception was held in The Malton, a lovely hotel located right in the center of the town. It was there that I met Fiona in the morning while she was getting her hair and makeup done in the …

Maryborough House Wedding

Joanne & Eddie are a fantastic couple whom I met last year, and had the honour of shooting their wedding. It was one of those great sunny, fun days, where everyone was in really good form and ready to party! Joanne tells me that she met Eddie in Mangans nightclub in Cork (obviously love at …
